Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management - ZLM7.2


Hardware inventory settings can not be configured globally from ZCC.

Tying to add switches to the option "inventory-scanner-options" (in ZCC, under Configuration->ZDM Settings->Add->inventory->inventory-scanner-options, setting the value to: "
-braille -floppy -parallel")

ERROR: "One or more character is invalid".


To obtain access to a hot patch with the fix for this problem, follow the instructions in KB 3469853 "Updates to Novell ZENworks 7.2 Linux Management" which can be found at

Additional Information

Doing it locally in the device itself does work. For instance:
# rug set inventory-scanner-options -braille,-floppy,-parallel
